    So many meat loaf recipes call for all kinds of crazy things. I prefer to keep it simple and showcase the flavor of very good ground meat. First -premium ground chuck 80% - 20%. Do not buy your meat at WalMart. Their ground meat is so full of water and preservatives that it makes me sick just to think about it. I do shop at WalMart - just never for meat.

    Pre heat oven to 350 degrees

    2 lbs 80% - 20% ground chuck

    1 medium onion - minced

    2 cloves garlic smashed and minced

    1 jalapeno pepper seeded and minced

    2 tbsp beef stock/broth

    Mix by hand but do not over mix - it is meat not clay

    Add whatever herbs you like - fresh - thyme, oregano, basil, dill, rosemary - take your pick.


    Spray a loaf pan with Olive Oil Pam.

    Gently form your meat into a loaf shape

    Bake until meat draws away from the pan(1 hour)

    I am not a fan of tomato gravy on meat loaf. I like a meat gravy. In a small sauce pan add 1 tbsp minced onion, 1/4 tbsp minced garlic, 1 cup beef stock/broth, 1 tbsp butter, 1 tsp Wondra flour. Whisk and reduce until the consistency of cream soup. Slice your wonderful meat loaf - plate and top with gravy. Note: add fresh or reconstituted wild mushrooms to the gravy for a BAVOOM.

    You grab your holy Jesus cross, grind it with salt, add pork and mix with basil. Don't worry about the cross. God isn't real. And it tastes damn good
